I love everything about this place. It has everything I need, including french bakery bread, locally made granola, a discount produce bin, loose teas (in the bulk section), and some seriously delicious vegan cookies. I love their bulk section, and am always buying my nut butters granola flours and muesli here. I can really compile a bill here, though, so I'll probably become a member soon and volunteer for the discount.

I have changed my rating from a 7 to a 9. I don't know if they have changed or I have - but I appreciate them a whole lot more now. I appreciate their determination to do things the old-fashioned way. They also get some points for selling Spokes Pizza by the slice. The selection is smaller than many of the other twin cities co-ops, but they do have vegan chunks of energy, and no one else carries those, they also have vegan chocolate covered almonds, heart thrive 'bars' (kind of a cross between a cookie, and an energy bar I guess), they have local baked goods from Hard Times and Seward Cafe, too. Oh, and they also have a bin where they sell less than presentable produce for .45 cents a pound - pretty cool. I used to stop in every so often because I could remember going there when I was really little, and the place was like a maze of really tall wooden shelves. But now I go because I have some to adore this co-op that still holds onto it's values of serving the community, and getting local folks involved.

With its recent rennovations, North Country might have a bit of catching up to do on its selection, but these folks are well on their way. This is a beautiful place to shop, on an ordinary day you might catch live music, or great music playing overhead. You can stop in and grab a cup of coffee and a snack while you plan your bus route for the morning. With its West Bank / University of Minnesota location this is a very great asset to its community and worthy of support. See you there!

I love stopping here to pick up lunch, they have a good selection of items from local restaurants and distributers and always have yummy vegan baked goods from the Hard Times in their bakery case.

I really like North Country Co-op. It's a workers' co-op, which is great! I also really like the fact that they are so close to the university; if you take classes on the West bank, all you have to do is cross the street and get tons of yummy vegan food. They have pretty much all I need there: lots of fruits and vegetables, breads, soy milk, cookies, chocolate, rice, spices, soy ice cream, and even fresh soup, spinach pies, and salads. Recording prices for bulk items and fruits and vegetables doesn't bother me at all. It might be a bit weird in the beginning but you really get used to it and it helps you remember how much you pay for your food. Another advantage is that if you work there a few hours a month you get a big discount. You should really check this place out, especially if you go to University of Minnesota!
